Paperboy, a wine bottle made out of compressed recycled paper. “Paperboy is about as green as it’s possible to make a wine bottle. It’s made out of a compressed recycled paper, printed with natural inks and the inside contains a recyclable sleeve like you find in a box of wine.  The bottles are rigid and strong – they’re even ice bucket safe for three hours – and take only 15% of the energy that regular glass bottles take to produce. They weigh only an ounce when empty so save a huge amount of energy on shipping. In Safeway now and available nationwide soon.” By Stranger & Stranger

“Smakshonning is a new range of honey with added flavor (hazelnut, raspberry and thyme) from Honningcentralen, Norway’s leading honey producer. The idea was to create a chemistry inspired bottle, to emphasize the applicability of honey within gastronomy. In addition to the three 350g main bottles, a gift set with a portion sized bottle of each flavour was created. The gift set bottles had a cork with the classic honey stick attached to it, resembling pipette found in chemistry labs.” Via The Dieline

A reusable ceramic bottle keeping the wine cold even in warm weather, from Mer Soleil.

“In 1988 our family planted grapes in the Santa Lucia Highlands appellation of Monterey County because we believed it would provide the best growing conditions in California for Chardonnay. We started making Mer Soleil, a barrel fermented Chardonnay in the classic full blown California style. But years later we started to see that the market was also interested in unoaked Chardonnay. That’s when my family and I decided to seize the moment and make a second Chardonnay named “SILVER” that would remain free of oak and made in a classic Chablis style with tropical elements and crisp, pure, mineral essence. Furthermore we decided to age and ferment this wine in stainless steel and natural cement tanks imported from France. But wait… it gets better. After doing a lot of research and planning we also decided to bottle this wine in a ceramic bottle to pay tribute to this winemaking style.

Not only does the bottle help maintain a cool serving temperature but it’s 100% reusable! We’ve seen many people use our ceramic bottle as a decanter, a water pitcher at the dinner table, candle holder, even as a vase for flowers.”

Superior ingredients, meticulous brewing conditions yielding unparalleled results. One taste and we knew, this was the real deal. Geneva Lake founded their family brewery in the heart of big beer country. A gutsy stand not for the faint-hearted indeed.”

Meet glass, ink and crimped metal!

Wisconsin’s finest.” Designed by Alchemy LTD and photography by Andrews Braddy.

 “Tea in capsules, from Swedish brand Löfbergs Lila. 347 %. That is how much the sales of capsules in Sweden increased in 2011 (Source: AC Nielsen, Jan 2012). Coffee capsules of all kinds have become a best-seller, and the capsule machine is very common in Swedish homes. The machine now has more fields of application. Last year Löfbergs Lila launched tea capsules under the trademark Kobbs. The possibility of brewing one cup at a time in a quick and easy way is a success. It is great to be able to offer all tea drinkers this easy solution. At the same time, you preserve the great taste qualities that you find in loose tea. It tastes more and looks more delicious in your tea cup, says Leif Sjöblom, marketing manager at Löfbergs Lila.” Via Mynewsdesk
